What our mentors are saying.

Shruti Merchant

Founder at HubHaus

"I wish I had something like MentorPass when I was starting HubHaus."

"I wish I had something like MentorPass when I was starting HubHaus."

Mentorpass is very compelling. It's a high value problem. Just like Y-Combinator democratized access to capital, I think you guys could do the same for mentors and advisors.

Shruti M.
Founder & Chairman at HubHaus

"Really great actionable input that helps keep me motivated and on track."

My call with Patrick was very informative in shaping the path of my fundraise. He guided me through what investors will be looking for and how I can create a model that is realistic in attracting VC.

Kirstyn S.
Founder of ThePlayground

"Constructive advice on the business while building my confidence."

A great job of listening. Every question he asked was productive and thoughtful. Kenny provided the direction I needed to achieve my short-term and long-term goals.
